    Tableau Prep CLI: Unable to find rest api port after 100 retries.

    Rey Magdaong

      Dear All,


      I would like to ask for your assistance/help. I'm trying ti schedule the tableau prep task using the cli. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

      Sometimes I'm receiving this error: Unable to find rest api port number after 100 retries.


      this is my cli command


      cd "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Prep 2018.2\scripts"

      tableau-prep-cli.bat -c "D:\SFDC_Data\Interface_Dataloader\Dataloader CLI Config\tableauprepcredential.json" -t "D:\SFDC_Data\Interface_Dataloader\Interface ERP-Salesforce Transformation.tfl" -d


      as per documentation.

      Save and Share Tableau Prep Work - Tableau

      I also set the crendential file with blank connections


      I'm only using text files(csv) as the source file, and export it also as a csv, in the local machine.


      Attached is the cli log as well.


      Really appreciate your help,


      Thank you very much!
